The Movie Where Michelle Rodriguez Plays A Transgender Assassin Dropped Its First Trailer — & It’s Just As Offensive As We Thought!

Oh, Michelle Rodriguez, nooooooooo.

As you may recall, back in September, Miz Rodriguez sparked some controversy when it was revealed she would be playing a transgender assassin in the flick The Assignment.

The LGBT community was rightfully upset about this movie as it A) had a cisgender actor playing a role which could’ve gone to an actual trans woman and B) had Michelle’s character undergo a FORCED sex-reassignment surgery, which makes it seem like the procedure is a punishment. Tsk, tsk!

And now that the trailer is here, we can safely say, it looks just as bad as it sounds. Although the The Fate of the Furious star attempted to defend this project, we doubt many people will rush to the box office to snag tickets. Don’t believe us?

Ch-ch-check out the uncomfortable trailer for yourself (above) and, as always, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)!
